July Art Roundup: Supernatural, Sherlock, Star Trek, & More!

Thanks to SuperCon in Miami, I have lots of new artists to share this month! I tried to do better this time by asking artists what wasn't available online, so I could buy more things for the give-away board that you couldn't easily get yourselves. Makes my give-away board that much more enticing, no? ;)

First up, Franciso Perez. His new take on Mario &Yoshi would be perfect in a kid's room:

 "Mario & Yoshi" 12X16 print $17

I'm also digging his minimalist Batgirl:

Check out his store for more!


I picked up one of these from Cryssy Cheung for the give-away board:

 Leia & R2D2 8X18 print, $15

I love the unusual size, and the soft watercolor background.

She also has cute 5X7 prints like these for only $5:




 Click over to Chryssy's etsy shop for more!


Melru of Ionitron doesn't have an online store - she only sells at conventions - but check out her super fun MegaMan:


And I liked Melru's Mario print so much I bought one for the give-away board! Who love ya? Huh?

 Love that soft color palette.


As John and I were walking through artists' alley we were stopped in our tracks by the most stunning painting of Spock:


Amanda Tolleson's art is so photo-realistic she's routinely accused of using actual photos, so she started taking process videos as proof. (She had one playing at her table on an iPad.) Wowza.

Her Sherlock and Supernatural art is equally jaw-dropping:


In fact, John bought her darker Castiel print for his man cave. Then I picked up that Sherlock up there for the give-away board, since Amanda doesn't have an online store.

Don't fret, though; Amanda will still sell via e-mail, if you're interested! Head over to her DeviantArt gallery to see the rest of her work, and you can contact her through her website for prints. (I don't remember the exact prices, but they were really reasonable - in the $30 range.)

 And speaking of Castiel, here's John's favorite art piece of the con:







 "Wayward Son" by Newsha Ghasemi, 13X19 print, $15

John loved how this illustrates something we never got to see in the show: Castiel rescuing Dean from hell. (And check out the hand burning his shoulder. Very. Cool.)

We've been watching Supernatural again from the beginning, so all the fanart really caught our eye this con. :)

Newsha had so many great prints, but this was my favorite:

"Someday I'll Be..." 13X19 print, $15

Check out all the Disney version homages here: Eric's wearing Ursula's shell, Ariel has a fork in her hair, and around them on the beach is Sebastian, Scuttle, a pipe, dancing couple, etc. LOVE. And I kind of like how both of them have tattoos; it adds more life and depth to them somehow.

And I have to say, this resin-coated print is STUNNING in person. The colors almost look metallic, the reds and blues are so vivid. The image here just can't do it justice.

And if you like that, Newsha also has a Beauty and the Beast one:

 "For Who Could Ever Learn..."

Love all the castle characters on and around the little side table.


And finally, one more big print you can only buy in person at a convention or win here at Epbot:

 Maleficent, by Danielle Otrakji

Such a great style! (And did you miss the dragon eye?)


I still have lots more to share and post to the give-away board, but my scanner suddenly isn't co-operating [>.<], so I'll have to save those for next month.  SO... give-away time!
Since I'm swimming in new art again (LOVE having that problem!), I'll choose TWO randomly selected commenters this month to take their pick of anything on my Pinterest art give-away board. I'll announce the winners sometime next week, and as always, I'll ship anywhere, so happy commenting!

[UPDATE: The give-away has ended, and my winners are ScaperMama & Evelina Persson! Congrats, ladies, and please e-mail me your mailing address & choice of art from the Pinterest Art Give-Away Board!]


And happy Friday, too! Hope you guys have an awesomely geektastic weekend. (John and I are happily ensconced in a major makeover of his man cave. WOOT! There will be construction pics soon!)

  2. Oh, the Disney pieces are just beautiful! And I really like the background in the Leia one as well. I like the cartoon-y style art, but I especially appreciate a slightly darker, more watercolor aesthetic.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love me some geeky art -- as much as I'll hate missing the majority of DragonCon this year (7 months pregnant and a two year old in tow will prevent me from enjoying both the crowds and panels), I'll definitely be swinging by for a couple of hours to peruse the art tables.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Pardon me while I swoon at the Sherlock print.

    ReplyDelete

    And great news about another reno at your house. I love when you have projects you share. I'm especially jealous of the wood work the two of you do because I feel that I could do quite a bit of that kind of thing if I had the tools!

    ReplyDelete
  116. Maybe if I hold my breath I will win? :-D

    (crosses fingers, holds breath)

    (passes out in a corner...)

    Hmm. Might need to rethink this!

    ReplyDelete
  117. Oh, wait, I wasn't trying to suggest that I don't like all of your arts and crafts and cosplay and photos and book reviews and whatnot - I love those too. Clearly my brain has shut down already on this Friday.

    ReplyDelete
  163. Not sure if my phone just hates my previous comment to the point of just tossing it but whatevs. The one that I may have to get if I can scrounge up the money is the supersized Yoshi (makes me want an actual Yoshi now, even if I do just go around causing mayhem and destruction :D).

    ReplyDelete
